India Crash mail – 1930 (Oct 3) envelope “By Air Mail” from Kamptee to Okehampton, readdressed to Northumberland, bearing 1929 GV 8a Airmail and with Okehampton (Oct 10). The dates proving that this envelope was carried aboard Imperial Airways flight IW 79 which crashed when forced to land in order to refuel, killing four people. The envelope was recovered by the R.A.F. and eventually flown Nuremburg – Cologne – Croydon on the 17 Oct. A few faults though generally fine considering its journey.
